A Hard Lesson Learned

Well, today Kole and I learned a hard lesson.

We we're going to paint our room later this afternoon, when I got a "brilliant" idea... Why don't we draw in permanent marker all over the place and later we would cover it up with the paint? Not good. We realized when we started painting that the marker was still showing through! We went into a long task of scrubbin' rubbin' alcohol to get some of it off.

But over-all I learned my lesson, I'll never draw on a wall again. :) Boy does that make me sound childish.

You can kind of tie this in with life. We all make mistakes, yep even me but every time we do, it's a time to learn and grow.

p.s. I put up a new song on the side-bar on Rush of Fools' new album.

Sometimes I don't belive what you guys do... Who took the pictures?

Kade: I zoomed in on the picture and saw 'I love Kade'. You write that?

Another thought;

We all sin (The Ink), and we usually try to cover it up (paint). But the thing is, no matter how much we cover it up, it will always show through. We need God's help (the alcohol) to remove these sins from our life, but sometimes the sin we commit will scar us for life (the ink that didn't come out).

Again, I worry about you guys sometimes...

I can't believe your parents let you do that.

This is hilarious! Glad you learned something out of it though :)

I really like Nicholas' spiritual example out of this. Very good and so true.

Chloe (My little sister) wrote that, Nick.

Who had the Idea to do that anyway?

I also like how Nicholas tied it in to the spiritual exsample as well!
I have a new post on my blog anyone may come see it!

This is so funny! It's like y'all made more work on top of more work! But, I guess the lesson learned is worth the work ;)

God Bless,
